EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning watercolor painting by Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins, created in the late 19th century, captures the prehistoric marine world of the early Jurassic period, approximately 200 million years ago. The illustration features two iconic marine reptiles, the Ichthyosaurus and the Plesiosaurus, swimming in a vibrant underwater scene. The Ichthyosaurus, with its long, streamlined body and fish-like features, is depicted with its jaws wide open, revealing the teeth that helped it to capture its prey. Its elongated snout and large eyes, adapted for seeing underwater, are also clearly visible. The Plesiosaurus, with its long neck and four flipper-like limbs, gracefully glides through the water, its large, reptilian eyes gazing intently at the viewer. Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins, a British sculptor and painter, created this illustration during the height of the Victorian fascination with the natural world. His intricate attention to detail and anatomical accuracy make this painting a valuable record of our understanding of these fascinating creatures during the Mesozoic Era. The Ichthyosaurus and Plesiosaurus were both part of the Diapsida group of reptiles, characterized by their dual-opening skulls. The Ichthyosauria and Ichthyosauridae families, to which these animals belong, were known for their aquatic adaptations, including their streamlined bodies and fish-like fins. This painting, with its captivating depiction of these ancient marine reptiles, transports us back in time to a world long gone. It serves as a reminder of the rich history of scientific discovery and the enduring fascination with the natural world.
